Francis Ford Coppola's powerful film of S.E. Hinton's classic novel captures how it feels to be caught between childhood's innocence and adulthood's disillusionment. The ensemble is the original Brat Pack: Matt Dillon, Tom Cruise, Emilio Estevez, C. Thomas Howell, Diane Lane, Patrick Swayze, Rob Lowe and Ralph Macchio. In an intensely visual style, Coppola has made these street rats and their struggle both heroic and unforgettable.

They grew up on the outside of society. They weren't looking for a fight. They were looking to belong. In 1966 Tulsa, teenagers come two ways. If you're a "soc", you've got money, cars, a future. But if you're a "greaser", you're an outsider with only your friends... and a dream that someday you'll finally belong.

 Forgotten classic

| | See all rossyd's reviews (5)

The Outsiders has got to be one of the most forgotten classics of all time. Considering the film is directed by Francis Ford Coppola and has probably the greatest cast of young actors ever it seems to be largely unknown to most. Great film, great soundtrack, great blu ray transfer. This film is well worth buying. Stay Gold.

 Great Cast. Legendary Director. Ok Film.

The Outsiders (1983) is a teen drama starring C Thomas Howell, Ralph Macchio, Matt Dillon, Rob Lowe, Emilio Estevez, Patrick Swayze, Diane Lane and Tom Cruise.

Director Francis Ford Coppola (The Godfather) does a terrific job recreating the 1960s with gorgeous cinematography and one of the best soundtracks commited to film.

The main problem with this movie is that the wonderful cast struggle to make an impact. The movie spends to much time with Howell and Macchio while the real talent (Cruise, Estevez, Swayze) are reduced to supporting roles and stereotypical characters.

The plot is pretty average stuff but the dialogue feels wooden at times and the movie has not aged well. While other movies like Stand By Me have a timeless nostalgic feeling about them this one just feels a bit cheesy.

Most of the cast would go on to bigger and better things and director Coppola will always be remembered for his other movies. The Outsiders is not a bad movie it just probably should have been better.
